TO THE RESIDENTS OF PELHAM: 

The past year has been one of great accomplishment for the Town of Pelham. 

Your Board of Selectmen, in addition to the regular duties of the office, 
have spent much effort in the quest of State and Federal funds to assist 
you, the taxpayer, with normal operating expenses and to provide new 
services that would otherwise have been cost-prohibitive. We feel a 
special sense of accomplishment in that all of our applications have met 
with success. 

In the field of municipal services, we have been fortunate to receive over 
$25,000 from C.E.T.A. for personnel in the positions of policemen, mainte- 
nance man, secretary, highway laborer, assessor and Administrative Assist- 
ant. All of the salaries paid to these employees have been fully reimbursed 
by the Federal Government. 

The Selectmen's Office initiated an application to the U. S. Department of 
Commerce, Economic Development Administration for funds to provide for a 
municipal incinerator. We are extremely pleased that our application for 
$578,000 for this purpose has been successful and the long-standing problem 
of solid waste will finally be resolved. 

The Town received the first installment of the H.U.D. Community Development 
Block Grants in the amount of $7,000 which was used to erect a fire train- 
ing smoke house and to do extensive work on the Golden Brook ballfield. 

The townspeople voted on November 16 to purchase Camp Alexander, thus pro- 
viding the Town with a recreation area, complete with beach frontage. We 
feel that this acquisition will be appreciated greatly in the years to come. 

Preliminary surveying and planning was started on the Sherburne Road project 
with construction scheduled to commence in mid-1977. The completion of this 
project will provide greater accessibility to adjacent services for Pelham 
residents. 

The Tax Map, which is mandated for all New Hampshire communities by the year 
1980, is now nearing completion and Pelham will meet all standards before 
year end 1977. 

The Board of Selectmen look back on the year 1976 with a feeling of accomplish- 
ment and assuredness that the groundwork has been laid for many Town improve- 
ments. We wish to thank all of the citizens of Pelham who have assisted us 
in the accomplishments of the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
PELHAM BOARD OF SELECTMEN

Herbert S. Currier, Vice-Chairman

auditing procedures as were considered necessary in the circumstances. 

Verification of uncollected and unredeemed taxes was made by 
mailing notices to delinquent taxpayers as indicated by the Collector's 
records. The amounts of uncollected and unredeemed taxes as indicated 
in this report are therefore subject to any changes which may be 
necessitated by the return of verification notices. 

GENERAL COMMENTS 

Treasurer : 

The recommendations of the previous audit regarding record 
keeping of idle funds were for the most part implemented by the Treasurer, 
However, the transactions involving investments are still effected by 
debit and credit memos by the bank. It is again recommended that such 
transactions be made by town checks for purchase of investments and bank 
checks for investments sold. 

Revenue Sharing Funds : 

Revenue sharing funds for the most part are still commingled 
with general funds and invested in certificates of deposits with idle 
general fund monies and not supported by separate and adequate accounting 
records. The provisions of the Local Fiscal Assistance Act of 1972, 
require, in part, as follows: 



ti 



Trust funds may be established on the books 
and records as a separate set of accounts or 
a separate bank account may be established. 

The accounting for entitlement funds 

shall at a minimum employ the same fiscal 
accounting and internal audit procedures as 
are used with respect to expenditures from 
revenues derived from the recipient govern- 
ments' own sources." 

Thus, a unit of government that commingles revenue sharing 
funds with its other funds for investment purposes must maintain accounting 
records which will readily permit the identification and verification 
of interest earned on the revenue sharing funds invested. Such interest 
accrues to and becomes part of the revenue sharing trust fund. 



A- 3 - 



Hie above has been brought to the attention of the Treasurer 
and will be implemented by him. 

Municipal Court ; 

Our examination of the Municipal Court records disclosed that 
the accounting records for bail and small claims restitutions are 
inadequate. 

We again direct the attention of the Clerk of Court to the 
following statute applicable to the fiscal activity of Municipal Courts: 

" 502:45 Keeping . (Justice's Records) Every justice 
or clerk of a municipal court shall keep a fair 
record in one or more books kept by him for that 
purpose, of all official proceedings before him." 

We recotnmend that the Clerk of Court comply with the afore- 
mentioned statute by maintaining a complete and correct record of all 
bail received from and returned to respondents, transferred to other 
courts or forfeited in whole or in part. 

Conclusion : 

The provisions of Chapter 71-A, Section 21, require that the 
auditors' summary of findings and recommendations (letter of transmittal) 
shall be published in the next annual report of the Town. Publication 
of the Exhibits contained in this audit report is optional at the 
discretion of the Board of Selectmen. This letter, however, must be 
published in its entirety. 

We extend our thanks to the officials of the Town of Pelham 
for their assistance during the course of the audit.

CERTIFICATE OF AUDIT 



November 9, 1976 



This is to certify that we have examined and audited the 
accounts and records of the Town of Pelham for the fiscal year ended 
December 31, 1975. 

Our examination was made in accordance with generally accepted 
auditing standards and accordingly, included such tests of the accounting 
records and such other auditing procedures as were considered necessary 
in the circumstances. 

In our opinion, the accompanying balance sheets and statements 
of sources of revenues and expenditures present fairly the financial 
position of the Town of Pelham at December 31, 1975, and the results 
of its operations for the year then ended, in conformity with generally 
accepted accounting principals applicable to governmental entities, 
applied on a basis consistent with that of the preceding fiscal year.

HIGHWAY AGENT 



I hereby submit the following annual report for the Highway 
Department. 

Summer Maintenance - Extensive drainage was installed on 
Hillcrest Avenue to eliminate water and ice problems in that 
area. Drainage was also installed on Wharf Road, Lane Road 
and Tallant Road. Many culverts were replaced because of 
age or because they were too small to handle larger volumes 
of water. 

Planned for 1977 is replacement of three large culverts - 
one on Jericho Road which is too small to handle the water- 
flow; Highland Avenue culvert which would eliminate water 
flowing over the road; and an old culvert on Dutton Road 
which is caving in. Also, some smaller ones will be added 
or replaced. 

A program of removing road heaves and shimming with hottop 
has been carried on for the past few years, and has greatly 
improved road conditions. We would like to continue this 
process on many of the older roads which are in poor con- 
dition. 

Reconstruction - Money for reconstruction was appropriated 
for Sherburne Road, the cost of which will be shared equally 
by the State and construction by the State should, hopefully, 
be started in 1977. 



Resealing - The resealing of roads will continue as in the 
past by the oiling of roads in the rotation of every three 
years. 

Winter has been unexpectedly severe, starting in November, 
which created an overexpenditure of the 1976 budget and has 
also depleted much of the budget anticipated for 1977 in 
the first few months of the year. Icy conditions required 
more sanding and more man hours on labor and equipment for 
the snow storms.

LIBRARY REPORT 



The year 1976 was a year of progress for the library, high- 
lighted by the opening of the children's room, an increase in 
circulation, and expansion of the library's collections. 

With the opening of the children's room and downstairs in 
February, the library's area was almost doubled. Also down- 
stairs are an office, a meeting room for library and public 
use, and storage space. An open house was held in February 
to celebrate the opening of the children's room. 

Over 19,500 books, records, and periodicals circulated in 
1976, an increase over 1975 's statistics. This figure can 
be broken down as follows: 

adult fiction 3,723 

adult non-fiction 4,212 

juvenile fiction 5,2^0 
juvenile non-fiction 2,840 

paperbacks 1,821 

periodicals 1,123 

records 905 



In addition, 1,609 hardcover books were added to the library's 
collection, of which 601 were purchased for the children's room, 
926 for the adult section, and 82 that were donated. These pur- 
chases bring the library's hardcover book total to 14,613 volumes 
With the purchase of a paperback book case, the library was able 
to enlarge its paperback collection to its current size of over 
1,000 titles. The library at present subscribes to over sixty 
periodicals, and hopes to increase this amount in 1977, 

Pearl Atwood, Children's Librarian, held 40 programs for chil- 
dren in 1976, for which over 1,000 children attended - almost 
twice as many as had attended programs in 1975, 

Over 600 new borrowers received library cards in 1976, bringing 
the total number of cards issued to over 7,400, 

In January, the library acquired an Olivetti copier for public 
use. This self-service duplicating machine is available for 
use at lOc per copy. 

Several exhibits were on display throughout the year, including 
a handicrafts display by Pelham residents, and some paintings 
by local artists.

the community. v;e welcome their assistance in providing and

CONSERVATION COMMISSION 



The purpose and objective of the Pelham Conservation 
Commission has been, and is, to help maintain and, in some 
instances, to help upgrade the quality of life and the en- 
vironment for the inhabitants of the community. To achieve 
these goals, the membership of the Conservation Commission 
has met bi-weekly during the past year in order to consider, 
possibly develop and implement various programs. More 
specifically, some of the accomplishments and activities 
of the Conservation Commission during the past calendar 
year have been: 

1. Participation in activities of the Beaver Valley 
Watershed Association - Joe Horowitz was elected a mem- 
ber of the Board of Directors in the fall of 1976. The 
organization continues to actively advocate environmental 
quality within the watershed and has taken strong stands 
against projected detrimental developments, particularly 
those which might affect the quality of the waters flow- 
ing through Beaver Brook and its tributaries. 

2. Surface Water Quality Analysis - A comprehensive study 
of Pelham* s streams and ponds was conducted by members of 
the Environmental Science Department of the University of 
Lowell, with the guidance of Professor R. J. Mathieu (who 
is a member of the Pelham Conservation Commission). The 
findings and conclusions of the three-month study indi- 
cated that most of the waters are usable for most water 
recreational purposes. The only abnormally high parameter 
(higher than U.S. Public Health Standards for water con- 
tact), in a few of the waters tested, was phosphate which 
is usually introduced to the waters from agricultural 
activities (fertilizers) or municipal and private sources 
(detergents). Copies of the 60 page report were dis- 
tributed to the members of the Conservation Commission 
and also put on file for the Town. The Conservation Com- 
mission paid for the expendable items consumed in the re- 
search. The total cost to the Town was approximately 
$150.00. This compares favorably to the lowest estimate 
of over $3000 by a private engineering firm for doing the 
same number of test sites, with fewer elements analyzed 
and no interpretation of the values expected. 

3. Development of an Environmental Awareness Program for 
the Community - Through the auspices of the Conservation 
Commission and the Audubon Society *s Environmental Intern 
Program, Julia Steed, a graduate biology major at the 
University of New Hampshire and a resident of Pelham, has 
this past year been preparing a curriculum to help develop 
increased awareness of the Town's natural resources, in- 
cluding such elements as its wildlife, natural vegetation, 
scenic and wild areas. Funding for this work has mostly 



30 



been through Federal and Audubon Society sources, with a token 
contribution by the Town of Pelham, but with the entire project 

administered by the Conservation Commission. The program is 
expected to be implemented this coming summer, in a cooperative 
effort spearheaded by the Conservation Commission and aided by 
other groups in Town, Pelham has been very fortunate to have 
had Julia's services in this project to date, which would have 
cost a considerable sum were she hired as a private consultant. 
The completion and implementation of this project will depend 
upon the appropriate token funding, in this calendar year, by 
the townspeople. 

4. Other Conservation Commission projects during 1976 - have 
included continued involvement in consideration of locations 
for a Town Incinerator, for public access to Town ponds and 
streams as well as keeping careful watch for instances of 
visual, air and water pollution within our Town's boundaries. 
As in past years, we have also aided the State of New Hamp- 
shire in making its decisions concerning dredge and fill ap- 
plications in the Town of Pelham; also, our Chairman, Arthur 
Reichert, has served the interests of the Conservation Com- 
mission as an alternate member of the Pelham Planning Board* 

Ideas and plans for the Conservation Commission for the 
ensuing year include activities for the townspeople and en- 
vironmental upgrading, in addition to the continuation of 
many of last year's programs. Consideration is being extended 
to such items as: (1) increasing environmental awareness through 
improved availability of educational materials; (2) providing 
garden plots for members of the community; (3) upgrading wild- 
life habitats through planting and seeding; (4) installation 
of refuse containers at selected public locations in town; 
(5) evaluation of appropriate parcels of land for establishing 
a Town Forest; (6) assessing the means of implementation of 
environmentally sound land use practices for town-owned prop- 
erty. 

The Conservation Commission welcomes the participation of 
the general public in its meetings throughout the year and en- 
courages the townspeople to suggest areas of especial interest 
for inclusion to its bi-weekly meeting agendas.

SPECIAL TOWN MEETING 
November 16, 1976 

SUMT-IARY 

The Moderator opened the meeting at 8:00 p.m. and read the 
warrant. 

"To see if the town will appropriate $150,000 to be 
used for the purchase of approximately 56 acres of 
land with the improvements thereon in Pelham from 
the Lowell, Massachusetts YMCA. The land has approxi- 
mately 860 feet of frontage on Long Pond and also has 
frontage on Mammoth Road. To determine also whether 
such appropriation shall be raised by borrowing or 
otherwise and to authorize the Selectmen to take any 
and all actions relative thereto." 

Fredric Everhard spoke for the Budget Committee, saying that 
the majority of the Committee voted affirmatively to recommend 
the property be bought, to be paid for by a note or bond issue 
to cover a five-year period. 

John Lavallee, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen, moved the fol- 
lowing motion: "that the Town appropriate $150,000 to be used 
for the purchase of approximately 56 acres of land with the im- 
provements thereon in Pelham from the Lowell, Mass. YMCA; such 
sum of money to be raised by the issuance of bonds or notes in 
the amount of $150,000, to be repaid by the Town over a five- 
year period, and that the Selectmen be authorized to do all things 
necessary to negotiate for and issue such bonds and notes." This 
motion was seconded. 

After deliberation, voting proceeded by ballot. A two-thirds 
vote was necessary to pass the motion. Result of the vote was 
as follows: 297 votes cast, 205 yes, 92 no. There being a 
two-thirds majority, article passed. 

The Special Town Meeting was adjourned at 10:50 p.m.

REPORT OF THE FOREST FIRE WARDEN AND DISTRICT FIRE CHIEF 

Since its beginning in 1893, the State Forestry Department has 
recognized the fact that forest fire prevention and suppression is 
a joint state and town or city responsibility. Local authorities 
recommend names of persons to the State Forester, who appoints one 
person as town or city fire warden and several other persons as 
town or city deputy fire wardens to a three-year term. 

The local forest fire warden controls the kindling of all outside 
fires, when the ground is not covered with snow, by issuing a 
written permit for kindling a fire. Permits are only issued at 
such times and in such places as the fire warden deems as safe. 

The State Forest Fire Service trains the local forest fire or- 
ganization in modern forest fire prevention and suppressions tac- 
tics. The State also provides backup personnel and equipment for 
suppression and prevention activities. 

The combination of State and local forces has resulted in one of 
the smallest acreage loss due to forest fires in the United States 
for the past 20 years.

POLICE DEPARTMENT ANNUAL REPORT FOR 1976 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen: 

The department handled 26,942 calls during the year. This is an 
increase of 1,901 calls over 1975. Areas showing greater in- 
creases were for assistance to and from other departments, am- 
bulance and oxygen calls, miscellaneous (some miscellaneous 
calls are major emergencies), stolen property and motor vehicle 
accidents. Malicious damage and vandalism by juveniles has in- 
creased considerably. We have managed to work out several ju- 
venile problems within the department, such as work details, 
thus eliminating court action. These have been on minor prob- 
lems. The results have been quite satisfactory. 

I have requested funds for a Moving Radar which is available 
through Crime Commission funds. This instrument allows the 
officer to patrol all areas of town and the opportunity to use 
the radar at the same time. Presently the cruiser must remain 
in stationary positions to accomplish this. 

We were sorry to have Sgt. Wayne Bariteau leave our department 
last March, after having worked here for 11 years. He was a 
very diversified officer. He relocated in Florida with his 
family. 

This past year. Officers William Dowling and John Newcomb were 
enrolled at the Nashua Vo-Tech School for training in Police 
Photography. This school was sponsored by the Crime Commission. 
Officer William Dowling also was enrolled in an instructor's 
firearms course sponsored by the FBI in Wakefiel'd, Mass. 

I wish to thank the townspeople for their continued cooperation, 
especially phoning in suspicious cars and persons, which cuts 
down on house breaks.

PLANNING BOARD REPORT 
1976 



This past year found our Nation celebrating its 200th anniver- 
sary and our Town celebrating its 230th anniversary. However, 
1976 was more thfin a year of bell ringing and celebration. It 
was a year during which your Planning Board took action to pre- 
serve the best of the past while solving some of the problems- 
of the present. 

For the past 230 years, Pelhtun has been a good place to live 
primarily because of its rural atmosphere. During 1976, the 
Planning Board sought to preserve this atmosphere by continuing 
its moderate growth policy. If you continue to support our mod- 
erate growth policy, in 20 years, when our Nation attains its 
goal of zero population growth, Pelham will find it has become 
a green oasis in the urban sprawl which will continue to plague 
the Northeast for euiother 15-20 years. 

As part of our moderate growth program and our attempt to pre- 
serve the best of the past, we recommended in 1976 that three 
more areas of Pelham be preserved in their natural state for 
future generations of Pelham residents. You concurred in this 
recoimnendation by creating three new strategically located R.C.A. 
Districts. 

But 1976 was not only a year for preserving the best of the past. . 
It was also a year for solving problems of the present. After 
months of study, we recommended the creation of a new industrial 
zone to help broaden Pelham' s tax base. Your action in creating 
this new industrial zone should help provide a long range sol- 
ution to Pelham 's fincmcial problems. 

In addition to implementing long range solutions, this Board 
initiated an immediate solution to Pelham^ oldest and most press- 
ing municipal service problem - its dump problem. For years 
Pelham *s dump has been a source of aggravation and controversy, 
an eye sore and health hazard, the subject of taxpayer complaints 
£uid broken political ctunpaign promises, and the object of law suits 
brought against the Town €md its dump operator by the State of 
New Hampshire. 

By an inter-office memorandum dated October 19,1976, this Board 
notified the Board of Selectmen that Planning Board member 
William T. Hayes had found a federal program, created by the 
Public Works Employment Act of 1976, which would provide 100% fund- 
ing for a municipal incinerator. The Selectmen assigned to their 
Administrative assistant, David Hodgen, the task of completing a 
grant application. Acting on behalf of the Plemning Board, Mr. Hayes 



37 



assisted Mr. Hodgen by obtaining the appropriate application 
forms and regulations, by obtaining unemployment statistic 
certifications from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and by 
obtaining no cost professional engineering assistance. 

Pelham was the first New Hampshire community to apply for public 
works funds and on December 23,1976 Pelham was the first New 
Hampshire community to be selected for a grant. The grant, in 
the amount of $578,000.00 will be used to construct a first class 
facility, which will include two pollution free incinerators and 
hot top access streets. 

In 1976 we sought to preserve the best of the past and to solve 
problems of the present. In 1977 we shall emphasize the future 
by helping to establish short and long range community goals. 
However, for future goals to be realistic and attainable, they 
must be founded on a clear understanding of the present. To 
gain this understanding, we must assess and define the existing 
physical make up of Pelham, the existing demographic make up of 
Pelham, and the existing aspirations of the residents of Pelham. 

In 1977 we shall assess and define the physical make up of Pelham 
by completing the tax map, a current land use map, a new soils map, 
a new wetlands map, a critical land areas map, a topographical map, 
a steep slope map, and a hydrological data map; by starting a fed- 
erally funded sewer study; by continuing a federally funded flood- 
plain study; and by completing a federally funded housing study. 

We shall assess and define the present demographic make up of 
Pelham by initiating an annual census. 

Finally, we shall assess and define the aspirations of Pelham 's 
residents by forming a Community Goals Committee and by prepar- 
ing, distributing and tabulating the results of a community goals 
questionaire. 

Our progr£un for 1977 is extensive and will require hard work from 
every member of the Planning Board. But its success will depend 
more on your cooperation and support.

BICENTENNIAL COMMISSION 



The Pelham Bicentennial Commission, with the cooperation of 
municipal and other local organizations, made available to resi- 
dents a bicentennial year of programs of cultural, religious, 
educational and recreational activities. The community well may 
be proud of the earned national recognition Pelham enjoys as a 
Bicentennial Community as a result of its bicentennial events. 
Also, the restoration of Gumpus Cemetery uncovered the fact that 
it is one of the few New England cemeteries to have retained the 
character of the eighteenth century graveyards. In order to pre- 
serve the uniqueness of Gumpus Cemetery and others in town, the 
Pelham Bicentennial Commission is proposing a March warrSint ar- 
ticle to this end. We trust residents are committed to saving a 
part of Pelham»s history as reflected in its cemeteries and will 
respond by supporting the warrant article. 

Of the $3,500.00 operating budget allotted the commission, 
$825.67 currently is being carried into 1977. Several com- 
mission projects remain to be completed: collecting historic 
maps and aerial photos of Pelham and compilation of pre-1850 
Pelham houses. 

The N.H. American Revolution Bicentennial Commission re- 
quested local affiliates remain active through August 6, 1977 
in order to participate in the Bennington program. Pelham' s 
commission is complying with the appeal. 

All items including letters, hand bell, official bi- 
centennial flag, grave rubbings and plot plans of Gumpus 
Cemetery, etc. collected during the bicentennial year are 
being given the Pelham Historical Society for preservation.

Pelham Recreation Commission 

PELHAM, NEW HAMPSHIRE 
03076 



REPORT FOR 1976 



1976 was a year of stabilization for the Pelham Recreation Department. In 
the past there were too many changes taking place. Although change can be 
beneficial and in most cases it was beneficial to the residents of Pelham, 
there was an inconsistency as to what was going to happen in recreation from 
year to year. Therefore, it was one of the goals of this Department for 
1976 not to add new programs or policy but to concentrate and develop present 
programs that have been successful in past years. 

This has been accomplished. Residents of Pelham now can be assured that pro- 
grams that were offered in 1976 will be available once again in 1977. Resi- 
dents also can be assured that the quality of programs can only get better 
because of the simple fact that the more you do something, the better it can 
get. 

Not only would it take a tremendous amount of type to break down each recre- 
ational program offered by hours spent, numbers enrolled, etc., but it would 
become redundant to those reading this report. Simply, what the Pelham Rec- 
reation Department did was to take the successful programs such as the summer 
playgrounds and expand it from six weeks (15 hours weekly) to eight weeks 
(30 hours weekly); double the g3nnnastics classes; and extend a summer teen 
program to a full year of teen activity. This philosophy has been adhered to 
for all recreational programs for 1976. 

Not only have the hours been increased but, more importantly, the quality of 
each program has improved greatly. 

In trying to reach our goal of consistency, adult recreational programs have 
continued and have become an important part of Pelham Recreation. 

With the Town's approval in March, the future of reci;eation in Pelham is very 
encouraging. Additional new facilities and programs, along with existing pro- 
grams, should provide the town's residents with a well-balanced program for 
1977. 



In closing, I, along with each member of the Pelham Recreation Commission, 
wish to thank all residents for their support shown to the Pelham Recreation 
Department in 1976 and feel confident that it can meet the challenge to pro- 
vide wholesome recreation needs for its residents.

STREET LIGHTING COMMITTEE 



The Street Lighting Committee was informed in August 
that a fuel adjustment charge of 1.3<t per KWH would be charged 
for our existing street lights* This amounts to $2936.54 per 
year. We had to pay the pro rata amount from August to Decem- 
ber. Since this additional cost was not planned in our budget, 
we were required to discontinue 74 lights to avoid an over- 
expenditure. 

However, under public utility law^ discontinuing exist- 
ing street lighting is not required of an Electric Company 
unless notified six months in advance. Granite State Electric 
Company discussed the problem with the Selectmen and decided 
to make a special effort to recognize our budget problem. They 
agreed to disconnect the lights at no cost to the town with 
the understanding that we would reconnect them in 1977. There- 
fore, we are not proposing any additional lights for 1977, but 
we are submitting a total budget of $18,335.54 which will re- 
connect the 74 lights and pay for a full year's fuel adjust- 
ment.

REPORT OF THE WELFARE OFfflCER 



In the year 1976 the Town appropriated the amount 
of ^8,000.00 for the Town Poor account. Out of the 
S8,000.00 appropriated, a total of 14,500.64 was 
expended for Town Assistance. 

There has been ^3,313.00 reimbursed to the Town 
through the recovery program. This represents monies 
reimbursed through liens and people who have received 
assistance from the Town in the past and who are now 
financially more stable and able to return the amount, 
or a portion of the amount granted to them. In summary, 
the net cost of Town Relief to you, the taxpayer, was 
^987.64 in 1976, as compared with $5,879.15 in 1975. 

The responsibility of the Welfare Officer does not 
end with the distribution of financial aid to the towns- 
people. Much time is spent following through with each 
case and referring them to other agencies such as, County 
Welfare, Merrimack Valley Home Health Oare and Greater 
Salem Mental Health for further assistance or guidance. 

In conclusion, I feel that the Town of Pelham has used 
its resources wisely and has been able to assist the needy 
without putting a laxge financial burden on the towns- 
people. 

Respectfully submitted, 

John Richardson, 
Welfare Officer

ANNUAL REPORT - 1976 



"You can be taken care of at home" or "You can go home from 
the hospital now". These are some of the most welcome and wonder- 
ful words heard by anyone who has been ill. They mean the chance 
to stay or be reunited with family members and friends and to be 
in the comfortable and well known surroundings of home. Health 
care begins at home ! ! 

Home health care is bringing health and assistive services 
into the home for the purpose of preventing illness, supporting 
optimum health, improving or restoring body functioning and en- 
hancing life and living. Various services provided by Merrimack 
Valley Home Health Care in 1976 in Pelham were 999 visits by one 
of our five nurses, 310 visits by our occupational, physical or 
speech therapists, 896 visits taking 2,108 hours by one of our 
seven homemaker/home health aides and 48 visits and 300 hours 
of available consultation by our social service worker. Tele- 
phone consultations numbered 199 and nursing supervisory visits 
163. 

Clinic and screening activities included giving 32 immuni- 
zations in 2 sessions to pre-school children, 255 flu immunizations 
to persons over I8 and I6I blood pressures taken at Senior Citizen 
meetings. 

Pelham residents serving on our Board of Directors in 1976 
are: Mrs. Richard Koch, Mrs. C. Michael McLlarky, Mrs. George 
Sutton, Jr. and Mrs. A. Vautier.

1976 ANNUAL REPORT 



The year 1976 proved to be a busy one for the Pelham 
Senior Citizens, so much so that the old barn area had to be 
renovated to accommodate the increase in attendance. The 
flooring was torn up and new boards laid; walls v/ere insulated 
and dry wall applied and finished and given a coat of paint - 
robim egg blue, no less - and is no longer referred to as the 
barn area but now called the blue room. Two sets of double 
windows v/ere installed allowing more daylight to enter, 
heating ducts were extended to that section of the building 
which now makes it useful as both a recreating area and dining 
room when needed. 

Our site was approved in January 1976 by Southern Nev/ 
Hampshire Services Inc., to come under the Federally-funded hot 
meal prograin. Miss Sharon Hall was hired by them as site manager 
to oversee the meals, plan programs such as arts and crafts, 
trips, recreation for senior citizens, etc., etc. Lou Haldeman 
was hired by them as our cook and a better selection could not 
have been made. This program was initiated on a trial basis 
and meals v/ere served on Tuesday, vVednesday, and Thursday. It 
has since been expanded to five days a week with Lou cooking 
three days and Sue Howling doing a fine job on the other two days. 

Of the many trips taken v/ere a sugar- on-snow party in Mason, 
New Hampshire; Older Americans' day in Keene , a cruise around 
the Isle of Shoals off Portsmouth, New Hampshire, a two-hour ride 
on the old Wolfboro Railroad, a 2-^ hour boat ride on the Mt. 
Washington on Lalie //innipesauiiee , and the Octoberfest foliage 
trip to Mt. Sunappee . All in all, thoy were a lot of fun and 
every one that took these trips was -most happy. 

A free blood-pressure clinic is held on the third Thursday 
of each month at 12:30 p.m. under the auspices of the Merrimack 
Valley Home Care Association. All seniors are welcome to take 
part in this very important prograin. 

Our Monday bov/1-' ng league is still going strong with about 
twenty-four members taking part. We v/ould like to see more 
seniors taking advantage of this v/ay of rela:^ing and having fun 
so come on dov/n on Mondays and join your friends and neighbors 
for our 10;00 a.m. coffee break, stay for lunch at 12;00 noon, 
and come along and have fun afterwards at bowling a few strings.

The Pelham Police Helief Association generously donated 
two picnic tables for which the seniors are most grateful, 
also, the use of the grills of the Square and Compass Club 
for our barbecues is most appreciated. The Pelham Baptist 
Church presented the seniors with a beautiful portrait of 
Our Lord, painted by P. A. Dufour; they also put on a chicken 
barbecue with all the fixings. The ladies of the Pelham 
Baptist Church did all the cooking and cleaning up afterwards 
and the seniors had but to sit and enjoy a most delicious meal. 

On May 18, as in previous years, the Pelham Lions' Club 
sponsored a dinner at the Harris Pelham Inn for the benefit 
of Pelham senior citizens, and a most enjoyable evening was 
had by all who attended this gala event. A sincere thank you 
to the Pelham Lions' Club. 

Our June festival featured a raffle on the following prizes, 
first prize, a Caloric portable gas grill; second prize, a three- 
speed bicycle,' third prize, a hand-made afghan; fourth prize, a 
hand-made quilt; and fifth prize, a half-gallon of cheer. This 
v/as topped off by a rummage and cake sale at the Senior Place 
where refreshments were available and at if; 00 p.m. the drawing 
of the prizes took place and the v/inners announced. Proceeds 
were to be used towards the purchase of a mini-bus for the use 
of the senior citizens. Zippy Moras and Gerry Daniels did an 
outstanding job on the ticket committee. 

In July, an application for a twenty-two passenger mini" 
bus was made with the Nev/ Hampshire Transportation Authority. 
The bus features a lift for any senior confined to a wheel 
chair, air condition, and a one-way radio to call for help if 
needed. The bus is oO% Federally funded with the other 20% to 
be raised by the Pelham Senior Citizen Club. Approval has been 
received by the Nev/ Hampshire Trans. Authority and we are 
confident that the approval of the Federal Trans. Authority 
will be granted. 

For Old Home Day, our President, Representative Henry J. 
Seamans, Sr., was chosen Grand Marshall, and led the parade 
with his wifeyLucy. The Pelham Senior Citizen float took second 
prize in this event which hade us all very happy. 

In November, the Pelham Council on Aging sponsored a 
Christmas bazaar which raised the sum of S700.00 to be used 
towards our mini- bus. The Pelham Grange rf2.l+k generously 
donated the sum of S600.00 towards the bus. On their Nov. Ik 
trip to the Lowell High Auditorium, the seniors enjoyed an 
afternoon of entertainment by the Showstoppers, along with the 
outstanding musical performance of Myron Floren, accordionist 
on The Lawrence We Ik Show. Our site manager, Sharon Hall, 
much to the disappointment of many seniors, left to accept a 
better-paying position; we all wish her well. Mrs. Gail Hennessey 
of Pelham was hired by Southern New Hampshire Services, Inc., 



•3- 



to replace Sharon and is doing a jolly good job. Gail has 
started a dancing program on Friday mornings at' 10:00 a.m. to 
teach the seniors the hully-gully, the hustle, polka, Greek 
dance, etc., etc. It's a lot of fun so come on down and enjoy 
yourself. 

On December 9> the seniors were the guests of Mr. & Mrs. 
George W. Harris who sponsored a Christmas party in honor of 
the 70th anniversary of Harris Pelham Inn. About 150 members 
took part in a delicious dinner (famous Harris style of course) 
and were entertained with beautiful accordi^ji music. December 15, 
the seniors were the guest of the Pelham High School Honor 
Society who served over 100 seniors with a delicious roast-beef 
dinner with all the fixings. December 'j>l about 110 seniors 
gathered at the Senior Center to partake of lunch (smorgasborg 
style) in our annual New Year's party, and to wish each and 
everyone good health and happiness in the coming year. President 
Henry J. Seamans, Sr., presented Flobsie Spence, Treasurer of 
the Pelham Council on Aging, with a check in the amount of 
Si, 396. ^3, which v/as derived from the sale of the Pelhani Com- 
memorative Medallions. The said amount was to be used towards 
the purchase of the mini- bus. 

In retrospect, in January of 1976, the Pelham Bicentennial 
Commission, under the chairmanship of Constance Lanseigne-Case , 
entrusted to the Pelham Senior Citizens the task of designing 
and issuing a medallion commemorating the Town of Pelham in 
this historic year of our country's bicentennial celebration. 

The senior citizens appointed the President of the Club, 
a committee of ONE, to undertake this project at no cost to them. 
The rest is history. After many phone calls and correspondence 
to the major firms engaged in striking commemoratives , the 
firm of V. H. Blackington & Co., of Attleboro Falls, Mass., 
was selected to strike the Pelham Medallions. 

The Pelham Medallions, unlike most commemoratives that 
are li" diameter and of 10 gauge stock, were struck in a 
special larger size 1 3/^" diameter and heavier 8 gauge stock, 
in bronze, pewter, and .999 fine silver and were issued three 
to a set encased in a blue velveteen lined display chest. 
The issue was limited to three-hundred numbered sets with 
each medallion in a set struck v/ith the same serial number. 

To the very few that had the foresight to purchase one 
or more of these sets I am sure they'll agree that they have 
a collection that is unsurpassed by any other community in the 
State of New Hampshire. The fact that, at the meeting of the 
Board of Selectmen held June 8, 1976, the members voted 
unanimously to accept the obverse (face) of the medallion as 
the new Town Seal, has tripled the value of these sets. The 
monetary value of the Pelhaiii medallions can only be judged by 
those who own them. 



-/+. 



The new Seal is now in the possession of Town Clerk, 
Fay« Emerson. It was presented to the Town Fathers last 
September by Henry J. Searnans, Sr., designer of the Pelham 
Medallion, in sincere appreciation of the great honor bestowed

REPORT OF THE SCHOOL BOARD 



In reviewing the accomplishments of the School District over the 
past year and in looking toward the coming year, one word clearly comes to 
mind to describe the direction of the Pelham School District. That word 
is accountability. The concept of accountability has served and will 
continue to serve as the basic foundation upon which educational' policy and 
decision making is formulated. 

This is not in any way meant to insinuate that in past years the 
School District has not been accountable or concerned about such accountability. 
The concerns and efforts in this direction, I'm sure, have always existed. 
However, certain factors have significantly contributed to a change in 
approach and direction taken by the Pelham School District in attempting to 
provide quality educational services during a time of local, national and 
world-wide monetary crisis. 

One major factor has been the extended services afforded the District 
through the local access of the Supervisory Union office and capable leader- 
ship of Superintendent LaBranche and the central office staff members. 
Working in concert with board members and staff members alike, significant 
gains have been made administratively in terms of a zero-based, educationally 
accountable approach to budget preparation and supervision. Requested and 
allocated monies are more directly tied to priority curricular and instructional 
needs. Secondly, continued expansion and implementation of a "Management 
by Objectives" approach to administrative staff supervision and evaluation 
has enhanced staff productivity. Finally, extensive organizational work 
has been accomplished in an effort to integrate and coordinate curriculum 
efforts between the three schools insuring continuity on a grade 1 through 
12 basis. 

A second major factor contributing to the success of the School District's 
efforts is, of course, related directly to the school staffs themselves. 
Certainly, the key to any school's success rests directly on the personnel 
working in the schools. Materials and physical plant are important but 
the staff is by far the most important component of any system through 
continued work at self-improvement, staff development, and modification 
of existing practices. Every employee of the school district is continually 
striving toward the common goal of providing the best education possible 
for the young people of Pelham. This chore has become increasingly more 
difficult in recent years as the schools have been looked to for the provision 
of many services once accepted by other institutions within our society. 
The scope and breadth of public education has been further expanded through 
legal and legislative actions. These extensive and sometimes seemingly 
impossible responsibilities only reinforce the need for top quality staff 
members in our schools. 



3-2 



Report of the School Board 



In sutnmary, I strongly feel that the Pelham School District has in 
the past year made significant progress toward improving the quality of 
education in a manner which is fair and responsible to both the clients 
(our students) and the taxpayers of the Town. In return, I would only ask 
that the people of the Town of Pelham display a greater and continued 
interest in the Pelham School District and the subsequent education of 
our youth. Only through mutual respect and cooperation will the future 
education of the students of Pelham be insured. 

I would finally conclude by offering my sincere appreciation and 
gratitude to all employees of the School District for their dedicated 
efforts over the past year. I would further express thanks and commendation 
to my fellow board members, past and present, for their untiring efforts 
and diligence in helping to make the Pelham School District an institution 
in which we can all take a great deal of pride. 



Respectfully submitted. 



R. Patrick Corbin, Chairman

SUPERINTENDENT ' S REPORT 



To the School Board and Citizens of Pelham: 

It is with pleasure that I submit to you my second annual report as 
Superintendent of Schools. 

This past school year has been a paradox of both successes and failures. 
However, our situation is a true reflection of how all of us must come to 
adjust priorities and face the challenges without malice and with the intent 
of providing the best services possible within the resources available. 

With the aforementioned philosophy in mind, I would take this opportunity 
to review the past and to predict what lies ahead. 

During this past year we were not successful in negotiating a new master 
contract for the 1976-77 school year. The issue that is still prevailing 
is one of money. That is, what can we as a district afford to pay for a 
professional service that renders the shaping of cognitive skills and the 
effective ideals of our children. Our existing salary schedules must be up- 
graded if we are to continue to both retain and attract the best possible 
teachers. The key to a quality educational experience is the teacher in the 
classroom. We must, in my opinion begin to reallocate existing financial 
resources to improve the level of pay for our professional staff or fac 
the inevitable conclusion that we will have constant staff turnover of unlimited 
proportions. 

Another area of serious concern is the special needs students. Presently, 
this school district is supporting fourteen children that require out-of- 
district placement for handicapping conditions ranging from severe emotional 
disabilities to physical and mental disorders. Our approach to providing 
educational programs for these students includes core evaluation; diagnosis; 
alternatives for remediation and eventual implementation with full funding by 
the district for both tuition and transportation. 

Beginning in 1978, Federal requirements will be mandated that state all 
students between the ages of three and twenty-one must receive a free appropriate 
education. We have been consistent with the financial implications of PL 94-1A2, 
however, we have not provided services for pre-school age children. The impact 
of this law could be significant from a financial point but more importantly, 
we must continue to support a quality educational experience for all children, 
regardless of their handicap. To this end, the district will have to consider 
the development of learning disabilities programs both at a local and regional 
level while still committed to the notion of the least restrictive alternative 
for each student. 

This past year, we have continued our curriculum and program development 
in both language arts and mathematics. Our design is to produce a district- 
wide program that relates program objectives with student results with an 
emphasis on the basics. Hopefully, these revisions will be concluded by June, 
1977 and with subsequent implementation by September of 1977 for language arts 
and 1978 for the mathematics scope and sequence. 



S' 



Superintendent's Report 

With forethought and planning, we have made efforts to develop better 
management techniques for the accounting of the money that the school district 
has provided us with which to operate schools. The improved relationships with 
the budget committee and interactions with the selectmen and other town officials 
I believe has demonstrated our willingness to cooperate and to be responsive 
to the expectations of not only the school board but the entire community. 

Finally, I would take this opportunity to express my deep appreciation to 
an excellent supportive staff that includes all the employees of this district. 
Their dedication to duty and responsibility makes my job that much easier. To 
the school board, my continued thanks for being totally supportive yet constantly 
probing in carrying out your charge as the trustees of the school district. 



Sincerely, 

Henry E. LaBranche

REPORT OF THE ASSISTANT SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



Dear Mr. LaBranche: 

Much attention has been focused on the needs of handicapped students 
in the district due to P.L. 92-142 and 93-380 which makes it mandatory to 
assist in student placement in programs outside of the districts if inter- 
nal programs are not adequate. This process requires much paper work as 
well as personal and telephone contacts which are very time consuming. 

Two years ago only a few students, with a very limited budget, were 
assigned outside of the district. Today, over a dozen students are in 
these programs outside the district with a tuition commitment of over 
$40,000 with an additional transportation cost of over $21,000. Placement 
in special program will continue to increase in number over the next few 
years . 

We are in our first year of a three year Title I program at Sherburne 
and Memorial schools. We are stressing the basic language arts and math 
skills as identified by our needs assessment survey last winter. A great 
deal of emphasis is placed on basic skills vjhich are so essential in the 
formative years of a student's life. Pelham's share during this year is 
a little over $26,000 which is used mostly for salaries. Approximately 
93% of total Title I appropriation is used for this purpose. The program 
has been approved by the Title I office in Concord and will continue to 
help as many students as the guidelines will allow. 

Preventive Maintenance will get much attention in the future due to 
necessity. From experience, we are convinced that some repair bills can 
be eliminated if preventive maintenance is practiced. When one considers 
the amount of money the district has invested in the three buildings; then 
maintenance and preventive maintenance can play a big role in keeping cost 
down. 

An area that is getting constant attention is the financial aspect 
and the controls that are exercised before purchases are authorized. It 
is essential that we scrutinize requests to purchase relative to priority 
needs and emergency requests regarding general maintenance. Due to the 
fact that budget requests are generally identified from 12-18 months be- 
fore the budget goes into effect, it's quite obvious that priorities can 
change drastically due to emergencies. We are doing our utmost to keep 
a close watch on the budget and keep accurate monthly financial statements 
which reflect a true reading of the expenditure, encumbrance and balance. 

Energy conservation is a concern which is prevalent in the minds of 
the Administrators and Board Members because of its obvious consequences. 
Reducing candle power, turning off lights when rooms are not in use and 
controlling the thermostats are measures which are now being exercised. 
We are in the process of pursuing other alternatives which will conserve 
even more energy, thus hopefully reducing or keeping the cost at a rea- 
sonable leve 1 . 

Sincerely, 

Frank A. Kaffel

REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL December, 1976 



Dear Mr. LaBranche : 



The following is the annual report of the E. G. Sherburne School's 
educational program for the 1975-76 school year. 

As a "child-centered" school, the Sherburne elementary school is able to 
offer our students individualized education. Each child is pre-tested in the 
academic areas, provided instruction to meet their individual needs and then 
post-tested to determine how well they have mastered the basic skills. This 
educational process provides an opportunity for our students to then review the 
skills in which they are deficient or move on to new skills which are part of 
our scope and sequence of skills on each grade level. 

This has been a year in which we are endeavoring to return to the basics 
in the mathematics area. Through the analysis of our SRA test scores, we have 
seen a deficiency in the area of computational math. Therefore, we have retained 
enough "modern math" so that children understand basic math concepts, but we 
are making a concerted effort to teach computational math skills. 

During Release Time (the first and third Wednesday of each month) , the 
staffs of Sherburne, Memorial and Pelham High School have been working to 
develop a continuous curriculum under the direction of Mr. LaBranche for 
grades one through twelve in the area of Language Arts. When this task has 
been completed, we will be moving onto the area of Mathematics. It is hoped 
that within a few years we will have continuous curriculum in all areas. At 
the Sherburne School we have already started to formalize the Math Scope and 
Sequence in anticipation of the continuous Math curriculum in the near future. 

The Core Evaluation Team - Mrs. Shelley, Reading Specialist; Miss LaPointe, 
Resource Teacher; Mr. Blake, Guidance Counselor; Mrs. Hamel, School Nurse; 
Mr. Meltzer, Speech and Language Therapist and Mrs. Smith, Title I - has spent 
the year formalizing their procedures to meet new federal standards. They 
continue to evaluate, prescribe specific programs and evaluate student progress. 
The program continues to be very successful due to parent cooperation and 
formal staffing procedures. 

The registered Dental Hygienist, Mrs. Vorce, continues to provide a program 
where children's teeth are cleaned and given a fluoride treatment. 

The volunteer program continues to be a tremendous success with parents. 
Memorial and Pelham High students assisting our professional staff. 

We would like to thank the Superintendent's office and staff, the Pelham 
School Board and the people of the town for the following improvements: 

1. The original Sherburne building, over the principal's office, has been 
renovated. A new suspended ceiling in each room, paneling of all walls and the 
painting of all wood trim has been accomplished.

Report of the Principal Page Two

2. Mrs. Rivard has been appointed Head Teacher at the Sherburne School. 
She continues to teach a full class load, but assists the principal whenever 
possible. She also assumes the principal's duties if he should be ill or 
attending any professional meetings. 

3. A special "Thank You" is given to the Pelham Lions Club for their 
improvements to our playground. They have installed picnic tables under the 
trees by the Open Concept area and put up two basketball facilities. In the 
spring, they will be adding two sliding boards for our students' and the town's use. 

I would like to recommend several improvements to the educational environment 
at the E. G. Sherburne School. 

1. During this age of school accountability to provide educational programs 
for all school age children, we need a learning comprehensive disabilities program. 

2. A part-time instructional aide to assist the Head Teacher in the classroom 
would be valuable. In this manner, she would be able to assist the principal in 
curriculum management and supervision. 

3. The old Sherburne building still needs many repairs. Rooms need to 
be painted, floors need to be tiled and many general repairs are necessary. 

In conclusion, I would like to express my appreciation and gratitude 
to you, Mr. LaBranche, as well as to Mr. Frank Kaffel, Asst. Superintendent of 
Schools, the Pelham School Board and all those who have contributed to the 
success of the current school year. 

DeWayne Howell, Principal

REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL December, 19 76 



Dear Mr. LaBranche: 

The multi-phased programs and services provided by the staff of Memorial 
School have apparently met the needs and challenges of our student body. The 
basic skills in the academic areas provide a solid and most essential foundation 
to which we can implement and enrich supportive areas of education. 

It is with a conservative and traditional basis of philosophy that the staff 
and this administration have directed our curriculum programs the last five years. 

Change, but not for the sake of change, reflects modifications to 
correspond to the needs of pupil welfare. Structure, organization and firm 
and consistent philosophy in building program provides not for a more restrictive 
atmosphere but, in fact, allows students to experience accountability and the 
responsibility of their actions under given circumstances. 

The areas of most concern to me, as administrator of this building, are within 
the services considered by some as less essential. However, should we consider 
a music or art program less important if it is your son or daughter that blossoms 
within those areas? Is it less important that a youngster's self-confidence 
and image develop from the successes in an artistic, musical, athletic or 
literary program? These programs are in need of help! Additional personnel will 
result in a reduced student/teacher ratio and increased opportunity of providing 
a more diversified program. 

In addition, an increase of personnel will help us to meet State recommendations 
in the area of a complete health program which does not exist presently. 

The projected enrollment for SU 76/77 did not meet our expectations. Might 
this, however, be the calm before the storm? We are at full capacity; using 
the stage as a classroom and the cafeteria and conference room for tutorial 
services. 

The school lunch program, under the direction of Mrs. Velma Houle, continues 
to serve our youngsters with balanced, nutritious and tempting meals. More 
than 80% of our students avail themselves of these services. Highlights of 
this program are the Open House, Thanksgiving Dinner and Picnic. 

I take, as Principal of the Memorial School, particular pride in the con- 
tributions and accomplishments put forth by the entire staff. These people have 
shown a concern not only as professional educators but as caring and sensitive 
human beings concerned with the development and growth of each and every youngster. 

Hopefully, these merits and aspirations that we have set upon ourselves meet 
with your approval and support. 



Anthony S. Conte, Principal

REPORT OF THE PRINCIPAL December 1976 



Dear Mr. LaBranche: 

Once again it is my sincere pleasure to be able to report to you on 
a most successful and rewarding year for the young adults at Pelham High School. 

We again experienced an increase in enrollment from 625 students to 675. 
The increase in enrollment most naturally produced some overloads and increased 
class sizes as we added no new staff. 

My highest compliments are extended to the young people of Pelham in 
their efforts and deportment to the commitment of an efficiently and smoothly 
run high school. Our efforts, along with theirs, has produced a school of which 
we can all be proud. 

Our commencement exercises saw 125 Pelham citizens mark their departure 
into new opportunities. Our new Superintendent wished them well in their 
collegiate, work and service and urged that they continue to be a participant 
in community affairs. 

David O'Brien distinguished himself as the National Representative to 
Boys State in Washington, D.C. on behalf of Pelham High School. 

It is our belief that each young person who walked through our doors 
this year indeed had the opportunity to gain a fine educational experience. 
We felt fortunate to send many of your sons and daughters on to fine 
colleges and universities throughout the United States and Canada. 

Once again the Program of Studies and Student Handbooks were adjusted 
to reflect the best of the academic and real world for the proper social and 
academic experiences your young people need for success in our present day 
society. 

Both our music and athletic programs prospered as evidenced by our 
fine concerts and the girls' basketball team which reached the state semi-finals. 

No program can long prosper or show such evidence of success without 
sound reason. Many people performing many details will make good school systems. 
Pelham is a good school system. 

My sincere thanks are extended to those good people performing so 
well on behalf of your youngsters. 

Our staff, teachers, school nurse, secretaries, custodians, cafeteria 
workers supported by the Superintendent and School Board, deservedly should 
take a bow for many jobs and details so well done. 

My personal gratitude goes out to each group. My sincere and special 
thanks to my Assistant Principal, Mr. Roche, and to Principals Conte and Howell 
for their great cooperation. 

I conclude with the thought that we will continue to strive to become 
an even better school with the support of all the people of Pelham. 

Paul Phinney, Principal

Article 8 - No action required. 

Article 9 - No action required. 

A motion by Seth Marshall that the School Board request a position 
of Purchasing Agent at the next annual School District Meeting at an 
annyal salary of $14,000 was defeated. 

A request by Raymond Metrano that the School Board prepare a report 
of expenses to date and budgets for the current year as distributed 
at School District Meeting for the budget hearings and be updated and 
included in the town report was passed. 

Resolution by H.V. Lynde - We, the citizens of Pelham, request 
the School Board and teachers union, during their negotiations, recognize 
the facts that the town's tax rate is one of the highest in the state; 
that the town has continued to support its schools by allocating 80% 
of its taxes for its children's education; that more of our citizens 
are finding it very difficult and for some impossible to pay their 
taxes; that the town's people recognize that by granting a straight 
percentage increase there is no differentiation made between the 
teachers who are contributing to our children's education and those 
that are impeding our children's progress and that a good teacher who 
is paid $7,100 will receive less than a poor teacher who is paid $10,000. 
Therefore we further request that the School Board and teachers attempt 
to reach agreement on a contract which will end the increasing difference 
between teachers pay and that pay raises be based on the teacher's 
contribution to our children's education. 

Meeting adjourned at 11:15 p.m. 



Respectfully submitted, 

Dorothy Hill 

School District Clerk

A deficit appropriation is made in the case where there are insufficient revenues available or an- 
ticipated prior to the close of the school year from which the appropriations as voted may be financed 
and will require an additional tax levy. A supplemental appropriation is made in the case where excess 
general fund revenues are available or anticipated be^'ore the end of the school year from which the ap- 
propriations may be financed and will not require additional funds to be raised by taxation. In the case 
of a "supplemental" appropriation offset the amount in SECTION II by writing in "offset to suppler- 
mental appropriation" on the blank line immediately following the caption Other Revenue from Local 
Sources. The total appropriations actually voted by the school district meeting to be raised by taxa- 
tion, cannot exceed by ten percent (10%) the total appropriation as recommended by the Budget Com- 
mittee, less amounts to be raised by bond and long term notes issued and withdrawals from capital re- 
serve funds. 

CONTINGENCY FUND (RSA 198:4b) Every school district annually by an article in the warrant and 
the governing body of a city upon recommendation of the school board, when the operating of the 
schools is by a department of the city, may establish a contingency fund to meet the cost of unantici- 
pated expenses that may arise during the year. Such fund shall not exceed one per cent of the amount 
appropriated for school purposes, exclusive of capital expenditures and amoritization of debt, during 
the preceding year. A detailed report of all expenditures from the contingency fund shall be made an- 
nually by the school board and published with their report. 

SECTION 11 -- ESTIMATED REVENUES AND CREDITS. Enter in Column 1, Budget 1976-77the 
revenues and credits as revised and approved by the Dept. of Rev. Adm. in setting the 1976-77school

mitted without recommendation are voted they will be accounted for in the report of vote to be sub- 
mitted by the school district clerk following the annual meeting. 

The district assessment from towns and cities is obtained by deducting the total school revenues and 
credits from the total amount actually voted (Column 3, Section 1). Balance report by adding the 
total revenues and credits to the district assessment. 



History of Pelham, New Hampshire 

EVOLUTION OF PELHAM, N.H. 

Pelham originally a part of Old Dunstable Grant (In 1733) Became part of the Nottingham District - N.H. (In 1746) 

Became a part of Township of Nottingham, Mass. (In 1741) Granted Charters as Town of Pelham, N.H. (July 5, 1746) 

The Town of Pelham, situated in the southeast corner of New Hampshire, was once part of Old Dunstable, 
Dracut, and Londonderry, and was named in honor of Thomas Pelham Holies, Duke of New Castle, England. 

The name was the choice of Benning Wentworth, then Governor of the Province of New Hampshire, who 
owed his appointment as Governor to this Duke of New Castle, then Colonial Secretary of this Province. Many 
other New Hampshire towns were named by the Governor in honor of friends or associates. There was much 
dispute of ownership of the territory. Masonic Proprietors claimed it was granted to Captain John Mason by the 
King of England. Wheelwright heirs cited direct purchase of the land from the Indians by Rev. John Wheelwright 
of Exeter, where deed was actually recorded because Pelham at that time was part of Rockingham County until 
about 1825. Pelham now is in Hillsborough County. 

Pelham contains approximately 25 square miles, several ponds: namely; Island, Gumpus, North (now known 
as Harris') also the North portion of Long Pond (about one-fourth mile) which extends across the Dracut, Mass., 
State line. (Gumpus Pond — originally "Gumpass" from the Indians — appeared on maps prior to the Town's set- 
tlement and was a landmark in locating early land grants. The current corruption "Gumpus" should not lessen 
the real significance of this historic name.) Pelham is circled by a ridge of hills: Gumpus, Sherburne, Round, 
Baldwin, Keyes, and Jeremy. On the latter is the N.H. Forest Warden's Tower for the protection of southeastern 
N.H. Beaver Brook (or River), having its source in Beaver Pond, Derry, N.H., winds its way though Pelham Cen- 
ter into Dracut, Mass., then on to join the Merrimack River in Lowell, Mass. 

In 1741, the Governor sent a committee to inspect the new districts and they reported; "We proceeded to 
Nottingham and opened the meeting house there — distance from Methuen 12 miles from information." District 
meetings were held yearly and on 10 March, 1746 (John Butler, Capt. Henry Baldwin, Joseph Hamblet, Zacheus 
Lovewell, Thomas Gage, and others) voted to make Thomas Gage moderator and to seek Incorporation as a 
Town. The western section became Nottingham West (Hudson) and the eastern part Pelham. Gov. Benning Went- 
worth granted Charters to both Towns on the same day — Pelham was Incorporated 5 July 1746. The Bicentennial 
of this date was celebrated in 1946 with the planting of trees, the publishing of an Historical Booklet (written by 
Harry Atwood), a parade, dinner, grand ball, etc. 

"THE WARS" 

Some of the first settlers of the town were with Lovewell in the famous Indian fight at what is now Fryeburg, 
Maine. In the long winter march through wilderness which ended in the capture of Quebec, Pelham men were 
present. At the reduction of Louisburg and in other engagements, Pelham was represented by men who were on 
the firing line. The record Is given only of those who died abroad. 

In our struggle for freedom, the men of Pelham from early colonial days to the present have always per- 
formed their part as true men and soldiers. In the War of the Revolution, (1776-1782) Pelham was represented 
on almost every battlefield, especially at Bunker Hill, where under that grim warrior, John Stark, they were at the 
rail fence and gave the British Grenadiers their first taste of True Yankee fighting. They also served at Benning- 
ton, Trenton, Brandywine, Monmouth, were with General Washington during the dark winter at Valley Forge, 
and at the closing scene of the Revolution at Yorktown, Pelham men were in the ranks. Soldiers from Pelham 
in the War of the Revolution numbered 114 . 

Although the War of 1812 was very unpopular in New England, the men of this town rallied to their Coun- 
try's call and bore an honorable part in that conflict. In the Civil War, (War of the Rebellion, 1861-1865) Pelham 
was represented in most major engagements. At Hilton Head and Charlestown, in the desperate assaults at Fort 
Wagner, Fredericksburg, and for almost four long years, bloody years, the men of Pelham fought valiantly to pre- 
serve the Union. The flag of the 13th N.H. Vol's, (in one company of which twenty-eight Pelham men were en- 
listed) was the first regimental flag carried into the City of Richmond when the Confederate Capitol fell into the 
hands of the Union troops. 

Again in the Spanish War, Pelham had its representatives in the nation's armed forces, and this beautiful 
rural community sent many of its sons into service during.those grim days of 1917 and 1918 as the United States 
joined with its allies in puting an end to the first World War. 

The people of the Town of Pelham thought, as did all people everywhere, that this first World War was the war 
to end all wars. But again the youth of Pelham was called on to join with other Allied youth to stamp out the 
Fascist threat to Democracy in Europe and the Pacific. All those who served their country in World War II did so 
admirably, many especially distinguishing themselves and the Town of Pelham (soldiers from Pelham in World 
War II numbered 159). 

In both the Korean and Vietnam conflict, the men and women of Pelham were not found wanting. To these 
brave people who from the earliest colonial days right up to the present have put their lives and their fortunes on 
the line that we may remain a free and Independent Nation, the citizens of Pelham owe an undying debt of grati- 
tude. 

As part of the National Bicentennial Celebration, Old Cemeteries have been restored, the Historical Society 
published a history of Pelham written by Frances Hobbs, Pelham citizens joined in the National Bell Ringing 
Ceremony which was held through the Nation at 2:00 P.M. July 4th, 1976. Many Pelham residents gathered on the 
grounds of the Pelham Public Library to participate in this memorable occasion. Among those present for this 
historic event were the Towns Representatives to the N.H. General Court, as well as the Pelham Board of Select- 
men.
